About the certification process



Once you have completed all the modules of your course, the next step to achieving certification is passing the examination process. Note that the DIY HIT course doesn’t provide certification and therefore, there are no exams to complete.
The final exam for the MPT, PT and CPD courses consist of three parts:
The first step is a questionnaire.
This is in a similar format to the quizzes you get at the end of every module. You can take this, as many times as you want until you achieve the score you are happy with. The minimum acceptable score is 75%.
The second step is submission of your practical video thesis.
Here you will demonstrate your understanding of the course by instructing an individual through a full workout. This will be scored out of 100.
The third step is a video-interview with Simon or another HITuni member.
Here you will discuss your video thesis in detail and be asked questions relating to aspects of your course. This will, also, be scored out of 100.
Successful completion a certification-level course, requires the achievement of an average of at least 75% on all three parts of the exam.

If you are unsuccessful in your first attempt, you will be able to re-submit once again with no additional charge. After this, there will be an administration fee of USD $100 per additional submission.

You can print your own certificate directly from your dashboard, this feature will be unlocked once you have successfully completed all parts of the certification process. You can also opt to have a premium hand signed card certificate sent to you as well, these are posted out in batches 4 times a year.

You can upgrade from any course to a higher level course at anytime by sending us an email hello@hituni.com . You will have the amount you paid for access to your original course deducted from the price of the course you are upgrading to.

Every two years you will be required to submit a written or filmed case study on working with a particular client.

With our certificate, you would likely be recognized internationally as a personal trainer specializing in HIT by trainers, gyms and individuals who know about HIT. There are gyms globally that encourage their trainers to specifically take HITuni certifications.
If you mean will various different bodies around the world with different perspectives on exercise acknowledge the HITuni certification then that is unlikely.
If you want to teach HIT specifically, then our certification is probably the best and most up-to-date you’ll find in the market. We interview leading researchers and authors in our field and base our certification programs on both scientific research and years of practical experience.

After successfully achieving your certification, you may decide to work at an established gym or to start your own personal training business.
